Hi

Just a suggestion:

Excessive complaints from LINK CHECKER when a location tag is missing
e.g.  <a name="top"></a>

Link checker complains of many 'broken file fragments' (in my original
html file this was a large number.)
It looks like any (unrelated) line of HTML which is split across several
lines causes an error - until the location tag is inserted.
This is similar to at least one of the already reported bugs but maybe a
bit different. IMHO.


The two results messages are shown below.

There are two test files at
http://www.topgps.co.uk/test/test_lnkchk_without_top.htm
And
http://www.topgps.co.uk/test/test_lnkchk_with_top.htm

Regards
Andy
